Directed Research Program in Reading, Early Childhood, Vocational Education, School Organization and Administration, FY 72 - FY 76.
National Center for Educational Research and Development (DHEW/OE), Washington, DC.
In 1970 the National Center for Educational Research and Development (CER) reviewed United States Office of Education (USOE) Bureau of Research policies over the previous 15 years, and as a result of this review, initiated the Directed Research Program. This program will concentrate funds in four areas of high educational significance and will be conducted so that cumulative results can be employed relatively soon to improve the schools: (1) Reading, (2) Early Childhood, (3) Vocational Education, and (4) School Organization and Administration. In this document, development plans for each of these four areas are profiled against a timetable spanning fiscal years 1971-1976 with possible cost allocations per activity per year. Problems, objectives, and strategies for development of activities are described and major problem areas within activities are delineated. Research which concentrates on disadvantaged populations, which is linked to other USOE programs, which can be disseminated to the schools, and which can be implemented in experimental schools or regional educational laboratories will offer maximal return for the investment of resources.
